About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Joseph and The Big Group Hug

Ella and AJ are at Pine Cove Camp in the City this week at St. Vincent's School.  I was asking them about their day and Ella began to tell me about the bible story that they studied.  She began telling me about Joseph falling down a well when his brothers were all mad at him.  She talked about how later, Joseph's brothers came to him when they were hungry.  She ended the story with the brothers making up and "they all had a big group hug."  I asked, "did they really have a group hug?"  She replied emphatically, "Yes, my counselor said so!"  I love this version of the story.

Joni watched the kiddos while we went to dinner for my birthday.  To say my kids love her is putting it mildly.  They are pretty sure she hung the moon.

Happy 45th!

Tom surprised me with a babysitter and took me to dinner at Kirby's Steakhouse for my birthday.  Happy Birthday to me!
